١ أخبار 16

وَأَدْخَلُوا تَابُوتَ ٱللهِ وَأَثْبَتُوهُ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْخَيْمَةِ ٱلَّتِي نَصَبَهَا لَهُ دَاوُدُ، وَقَرَّبُوا مُحْرَقَاتٍ وَذَبَائِحَ سَلَامَةٍ أَمَامَ ٱللهِ. ١ 1
They brought in the ark of God and put it in the middle of the tent that David had set up for it. Then they offered burnt offerings and fellowship offerings before God.
وَلَمَّا ٱنْتَهَى دَاوُدُ مِنْ إِصْعَادِ ٱلْمُحْرَقَاتِ وَذَبَائِحِ ٱلسَّلَامَةِ بَارَكَ ٱلشَّعْبَ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢ 2
When David had finished sacrificing the burnt offering and the fellowship offerings, he blessed the people in the name of Yahweh.
وَقَسَمَ عَلَى كُلِّ آلِ إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنَ ٱلرِّجَالِ وَٱلنِّسَاءِ، عَلَى كُلِّ إِنْسَانٍ، رَغِيفَ خُبْزٍ وَكَأْسَ خَمْرٍ وَقُرْصَ زَبِيبٍ. ٣ 3
He distributed to every Israelite, both to men and women, a loaf of bread, and a piece of meat, and a cake of raisins.
وَجَعَلَ أَمَامَ تَابُوتِ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنَ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ خُدَّامًا، وَلِأَجْلِ ٱلتَّذْكِيرِ وَٱلشُّكْرِ وَتَسْبِيحِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: ٤ 4
David appointed certain Levites to serve before the ark of Yahweh, and to celebrate, thank and praise Yahweh, the God of Israel.
آسَافَ ٱلرَّأْسَ وَزَكَرِيَّا ثَانِيَهُ، وَيَعِيئِيلَ وَشَمِيرَامُوثَ وَيَحِيئِيلَ وَمَتَّثْيَا وَأَلِيآبَ وَبَنَايَا وَعُوبِيدَ أَدُومَ وَيَعِيئِيلَ بِآلَاتٍ رَبَابٍ وَعِيدَانٍ. وَكَانَ آسَافُ يُصَوِّتُ بِٱلصُّنُوجِ. ٥ 5
These Levites were Asaph the leader, and second to him Zechariah, Jaaziel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, Obed Edom, and Jeiel. These were to play with stringed instruments and with harps. Asaph was to sound the cymbals, sounding loudly.
وَبَنَايَا وَيَحْزِيئِيلُ ٱلْكَاهِنَانِ بِٱلْأَبْوَاقِ دَائِمًا أَمَامَ تَابُوتِ عَهْدِ ٱللهِ. ٦ 6
Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests were to blow the trumpets regularly, before the ark of the covenant of God.
حِينَئِذٍ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ أَوَّلًا جَعَلَ دَاوُدُ يَحْمَدُ ٱلرَّبَّ بِيَدِ آسَافَ وَإِخْوَتِهِ: ٧ 7
Then on that day David first appointed Asaph and his brothers to sing this song of thanksgiving to Yahweh.
«اِحْمَدُوا ٱلرَّبَّ. ٱدْعُوا بِٱسْمِهِ. أَخْبِرُوا فِي ٱلشُّعُوبِ بِأَعْمَالِهِ. ٨ 8
Give thanks to Yahweh, call on his name; make known his deeds among the nations.
غَنُّوا لَهُ. تَرَنَّمُوا لَهُ. تَحَادَثُوا بِكُلِّ عَجَائِبِهِ. ٩ 9
Sing to him, sing praises to him; speak of all his marvelous deeds.
ٱفْتَخِرُوا بِٱسْمِ قُدْسِهِ. تَفْرَحُ قُلُوبُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَلْتَمِسُونَ ٱلرَّبَّ. ١٠ 10
Boast in his holy name; let the heart of those who seek Yahweh rejoice.
ٱطْلُبُوا ٱلرَّبَّ وَعِزَّهُ. ٱلْتَمِسُوا وَجْهَهُ دَائِمًا. ١١ 11
Seek Yahweh and his strength; seek his presence continually.
ٱذْكُرُوا عَجَائِبَهُ ٱلَّتِي صَنَعَ. آيَاتِهِ وَأَحْكَامَ فَمِهِ. ١٢ 12
Recall the marvelous things he has done, his miracles and the decrees from his mouth,
يَا ذُرِّيَّةَ إِسْرَائِيلَ عَبْدِهِ، وَبَنِي يَعْقُوبَ مُخْتَارِيهِ. ١٣ 13
you descendants of Israel his servant, you people of Jacob, his chosen ones.
هُوَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا. فِي كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ أَحْكَامُهُ. ١٤ 14
He is Yahweh, our God. His decrees are on all the earth.
ٱذْكُرُوا إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ عَهْدَهُ، ٱلْكَلِمَةَ ٱلَّتِي أَوْصَى بِهَا إِلَى أَلْفِ جِيلٍ. ١٥ 15
Keep his covenant in mind forever, the word that he commanded for a thousand generations.
ٱلَّذِي قَطَعَهُ مَعَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ. وَقَسَمَهُ لِإِسْحَاقَ. ١٦ 16
He calls to mind the covenant that he made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac.
وَقَدْ أَقَامَهُ لِيَعْقُوبَ فَرِيضَةً، وَلِإِسْرَائِيلَ عَهْدًا أَبَدِيًّا. ١٧ 17
This is what he confirmed to Jacob as a statute, and to Israel as an everlasting covenant.
قَائِلًا: لَكَ أُعْطِي أَرْضَ كَنْعَانَ حَبْلَ مِيرَاثِكُمْ. ١٨ 18
He said, “I will give you the land of Canaan as your share of your inheritance.”
حِينَ كُنْتُمْ عَدَدًا قَلِيلًا، قَلِيلِينَ جِدًّا وَغُرَبَاءَ فِيهَا. ١٩ 19
When they were only few in number, so very few, and they were strangers in the land,
وَذَهَبُوا مِنْ أُمَّةٍ إِلَى أُمَّةٍ وَمِنْ مَمْلَكَةٍ إِلَى شَعْبٍ آخَرَ. ٢٠ 20
they wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another.
لَمْ يَدَعْ أَحَدًا يَظْلِمُهُمْ بَلْ وَبَّخَ مِنْ أَجْلِهِمْ مُلُوكًا. ٢١ 21
He did not allow anyone to oppress them; he punished kings for their sakes.
لَا تَمَسُّوا مُسَحَائِي وَلَا تُؤْذُوا أَنْبِيَائِي. ٢٢ 22
he said, “Do not touch my anointed ones, and do not harm my prophets.”
«غَنُّوا لِلرَّبِّ يَا كُلَّ ٱلْأَرْضِ. بَشِّرُوا مِنْ يَوْمٍ إِلَى يَوْمٍ بِخَلَاصِهِ. ٢٣ 23
Sing to Yahweh, all the earth; announce his salvation day after day.
حَدِّثُوا فِي ٱلْأُمَمِ بِمَجْدِهِ وَفِي كُلِّ ٱلشُّعُوبِ بِعَجَائِبِهِ. ٢٤ 24
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all the nations.
لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ عَظِيمٌ وَمُفْتَخَرٌ جِدًّا. وَهُوَ مَرْهُوبٌ فَوْقَ جَمِيعِ ٱلْآلِهَةِ. ٢٥ 25
For Yahweh is great and is to be praised greatly, and he is to be feared above all other gods.
لِأَنَّ كُلَّ آلِهَةِ ٱلْأُمَمِ أَصْنَامٌ، وَأَمَّا ٱلرَّبُّ فَقَدْ صَنَعَ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ. ٢٦ 26
For all the gods of the nations are idols, but it is Yahweh who made the heavens.
ٱلْجَلَالُ وَٱلْبَهَاءُ أَمَامَهُ. ٱلْعِزَّةُ وَٱلْبَهْجَةُ فِي مَكَانِهِ. ٢٧ 27
Splendor and majesty are in his presence. Strength and joy are in his place.
هَبُوا ٱلرَّبَّ يَا عَشَائِرَ ٱلشُّعُوبِ، هَبُوا ٱلرَّبَّ مَجْدًا وَعِزَّةً. ٢٨ 28
Ascribe to Yahweh, you clans of peoples, ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength!
هَبُوا ٱلرَّبَّ مَجْدَ ٱسْمِهِ. ٱحْمِلُوا هَدَايَا وَتَعَالَوْا إِلَى أَمَامِهِ. ٱسْجُدُوا لِلرَّبِّ فِي زِينَةٍ مُقَدَّسَةٍ. ٢٩ 29
Ascribe to Yahweh the glory his name deserves. Bring an offering and come before him. Bow down to Yahweh in the splendor of holiness.
ٱرْتَعِدُوا أَمَامَهُ يَا جَمِيعَ ٱلْأَرْضِ. تَثَبَّتَتِ ٱلْمَسْكُونَةُ أَيْضًا، لَا تَتَزَعْزَعُ. ٣٠ 30
Tremble before him, all the earth. The world also is established; it cannot be shaken.
لِتَفْرَحِ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ وَتَبْتَهِجِ ٱلْأَرْضُ وَيَقُولُوا فِي ٱلْأُمَمِ: ٱلرَّبُّ قَدْ مَلَكَ. ٣١ 31
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let them say among the nations, “Yahweh reigns.”
لِيَعِجَّ ٱلْبَحْرُ وَمِلْؤُهُ، وَلْتَبْتَهِجِ ٱلْبَرِّيَّةُ وَكُلُّ مَا فِيهَا. ٣٢ 32
Let the sea roar, and that which fills it shout with joy. Let the fields be joyful, and all that is in them.
حِينَئِذٍ تَتَرَنَّمُ أَشْجَارُ ٱلْوَعْرِ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ لِأَنَّهُ جَاءَ لِيَدِينَ ٱلْأَرْضَ. ٣٣ 33
Then let the trees in the forest shout for joy before Yahweh, for he is coming to judge the earth.
ٱحْمَدُوا ٱلرَّبَّ لِأَنَّهُ صَالِحٌ، لِأَنَّ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ رَحْمَتَهُ. ٣٤ 34
Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his covenant faithfulness endures forever.
وَقُولُوا: خَلِّصْنَا يَا إِلَهَ خَلَاصِنَا، وَٱجْمَعْنَا وَأَنْقِذْنَا مِنَ ٱلْأُمَمِ لِنَحْمَدَ ٱسْمَ قُدْسِكَ، وَنَتَفَاخَرَ بِتَسْبِيحَتِكَ. ٣٥ 35
Then say, “Save us, God of our salvation. Gather us together and rescue us from the other nations, so that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praises.”
مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنَ ٱلْأَزَلِ وَإِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ». فَقَالَ كُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ: «آمِينَ» وَسَبَّحُوا ٱلرَّبَّ. ٣٦ 36
May Yahweh, the God of Israel, be praised from everlasting to everlasting. All the people said, “Amen” and praised Yahweh.
وَتَرَكَ هُنَاكَ أَمَامَ تَابُوتِ عَهْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ آسَافَ وَإِخْوَتَهُ لِيَخْدِمُوا أَمَامَ ٱلتَّابُوتِ دَائِمًا خِدْمَةَ كُلِّ يَوْمٍ بِيَوْمِهَا، ٣٧ 37
So David left Asaph and his brothers there before the ark of the covenant of Yahweh, to serve continually before the ark, as every day's work required.
وَعُوبِيدَ أَدُومَ وَإِخْوَتَهُمْ ثمَانِيَةً وَسِتِّينَ، وَعُوبِيدَ أَدُومَ بْنَ يَدِيثُونَ وَحُوسَةَ بَوَّابِينَ. ٣٨ 38
Obed Edom with those sixty-eight relatives were included. Obed Edom son of Jeduthun, along with Hosah, were to be gatekeepers.
وَصَادُوقَ ٱلْكَاهِنَ وَإِخْوَتَهُ ٱلْكَهَنَةَ أَمَامَ مَسْكَنِ ٱلرَّبِّ فِي ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَةِ ٱلَّتِي فِي جِبْعُونَ ٣٩ 39
Zadok the priest and his fellow priests were to serve before the tabernacle of Yahweh at the high place in Gibeon.
لِيُصْعِدُوا مُحْرَقَاتٍ لِلرَّبِّ عَلَى مَذْبَحِ ٱلْمُحْرَقَةِ دَائِمًا صَبَاحًا وَمَسَاءً، وَحَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ فِي شَرِيعَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّتِي أَمَرَ بِهَا إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤٠ 40
They were to offer burnt offerings to Yahweh on the altar for burnt offerings continually morning and evening, according to all that is written in the law of Yahweh, which he gave as a command to Israel.
وَمَعَهُمْ هَيْمَانَ وَيَدُوثُونَ وَبَاقِيَ ٱلْمُنْتَخَبِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ ذُكِرَتْ أَسْمَاؤُهُمْ لِيَحْمَدُوا ٱلرَّبَّ، لِأَنَّ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ رَحْمَتَهُ. ٤١ 41
Heman and Jeduthun were with them, together with the rest who were chosen by name, to give thanks to Yahweh, because his covenant faithfulness endures forever.
وَمَعَهُمْ هَيْمَانُ وَيَدُوثُونُ بِأَبْوَاقٍ وَصُنُوجٍ لِلْمُصَوِّتِينَ، وَآلَاتِ غِنَاءٍلِلهِ، وَبَنُو يَدُوثُونَ بَوَّابُونَ. ٤٢ 42
Heman and Jeduthun were in charge of those who played trumpets, cymbals, and the other instruments for the sacred music. The sons of Jeduthun guarded the gate.
ثُمَّ ٱنْطَلَقَ كُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ، وَرَجَعَ دَاوُدُ لِيُبَارِكَ بَيْتَهُ. ٤٣ 43
Then all the people returned to their homes, and David returned to bless his own household.
